Not enough time in the day to get things done? The

loom unexpectedly from nowhere. This sort of
environment leads to inordinate stress and low
performance. Learn how to improve your time
management skills, prioritise the things that matter and
have time to sit back and feel proud of your
accomplishments!

Building your Brand @ CW
Kim Cable @ Markethub
A brand is important to any organisation, and not just
9am to 12pm
those with the big marketing bucks. Because it can be
seen as taking time and money away from helping
people, non-profits often devote little or no time to
developing their own brands – but in fact you should do
the opposite.
A strong brand can transform your organisation because
it will enable you to build trust, gain resources, and
establish partnerships. Non-profits in general deal with
causes that are close to people’s hearts. They have a
head-start on the ingredients needed to develop a great
brand. It’s time to embrace your brand and give your
organisation a competitive advantage.

Conflict is inevitable, unavoidable and sometimes even

rather how it is resolved. This workshop explores what
conflict looks like and the impact it can have on an
organisation and individuals. Well-managed conflict can
actually strengthen relationships, build teamwork,
encourage open communication and cooperative
problem-solving, and increase productivity.
